Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The five-seat Subaru Impreza compact sedan and four-door hatchback was completely redesigned for 2012 and receives only minor changes for 2013. The Impreza competes with the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, as well as the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus and Hyundai Elantra, most of which have been recently redesigned or introduced. None of these competing models offers standard all-wheel drive, while the Impreza does. New for 2013 The Subaru Impreza gets standard Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming and steering-wheel controls plus an iPod/USB port. Uplevel trims with the optional navigation system now have a backup camera. Exterior The Impreza's styling is more mature than the 2011 generation's, yet it avoids blandness. It adopts Subaru's new hexagonal grille. While the wheelbase has increased almost an inch, the overall exterior dimensions are virtually unchanged. The A-pillars anchor almost 8 inches farther forward, giving the windshield a "faster" angle. Exterior features include:
15-inch wheels standard; 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels available
Power side mirrors; available heated side mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer
Available fog lights
Available power moonroof
Interior Leather upholstery comes on the Limited and Sport Limited trim levels, along with automatic climate control and premium instrumentation. Materials quality has improved on all trim levels compared to the prior-generation Impreza. Interior features include:

Standard remote keyless entry
Standard Bluetooth and iPod connectivity
Available navigation system
Available heated front seats

Engine uses regular gas
